For what it's worth, we have a fairly good idea of what to work on,  
but we're open to what is suggested to us (taking into account the  
fact that we have an extensive list of deliverables to ship in a two  
year period of course). Also please note that the "tentative"  
milestones indicating FPWDs this December are being moved down due to  
the delay in starting this WG. I wouldn't expect a long delay though.

We do, as a matter of fact this issue of access-control was discussed  
by several people during the AC meeting. It's unclear that there's  
consensus as to how to do it (a number of people don't like the usage  
of a PI, some don't like a statement that is done on a per-resource  
basis, and some think that this should only be addressed later, once  
we've at least done the first bits of our job -- note that these  
groups overlap) but it's definitely a topic of interest and it will  
be discussed by the WG once we've started in earnest.
